Possible bug when uploading supplementary file

Postby svillanueva » Fri Feb 22, 2008 4:51 am


I've tried to upload an 16Mb-avi file as a supplementary file of a submission (logged as the author) and once I have selected it, when I upload the file, I return to the first step of the submission. Then, I go to the active submissions page and I find it as incomplete. IMHO, very strange :-S

Thanks in advance,

Sergi Villanueva.

Hi Sergi,

Have you checked what php's memory_limit is set to? You may also want to search the forums for timeout issues -- Apache, IIS and PHP all have situations where they might time out, and uploading a 16MB file might very well be one of them.

For example, check the following:
